Smartphones don’t do overly well in low-light settings, even with the flash on. The iBlazr2 light clips on to your smartphone giving you the extra light needed to bring your nighttime photography out of the shadows.

No longer just for tourists, selfie sticks are quite the versatile tool if you’re not Inspector Gadget. Vloggers of various levels can benefit from a selfie stick, as well as photographers who want that shot of beautiful scenery in the background.
